50 reasons not to date a graphic designer
There are more, of course. I stare at graphics and signs everywhere I go, and pick them apart mentally (not just menus). I will save all types of stuff that has artwork on it that I like, but I don't normally bring home "weird" products because I like the packaging (instead I'll take a picture of the packaging with my phone).
I don't know if all designers are obsessed with the latest technology, at least I'm not. And while my musical tastes are way out of the ordinary,I doubt that they're shared my many other designers. We don't all idolize obscure legends in our field, and we definitely don't all hate each other.
